Free YouTube Live Show

There’s no denying we’re living in a stressful environment at the moment, with uncertainty and uneasiness soaring around us as the coronavirus pandemic grows. And I have but one coping mechanism; ignore the shit out of it and put on a show!

Ok so that’s not quite true. Ignoring advice from people who know more than I do would be a bloody stupid thing to do. Anyone want to duck down to Bondi Beach for a quick dip in virus?

But putting on a show? You bloody betcha. And having held a great show for the kids last weekend, I’m ready to cut loose and put on a show for us grown ups. ‘Cause Lord knows we need a little release.

So join me on Friday night (Mar 27) over on my YouTube channel. Or even tune in directly from this page below! There’ll be my own songs of course, but I’ll throw in some Tim Minchin, Flight of the Conchords, Scaredies, Paul & Storm and any other random fun I can think of.

Hope to see you there!

Concert for the kids

Our local kids festival has was cancelled, leaving lots of families like mine home with their kidlets at a time when we’re all just a little bit more on edge. I love performing and hoped that by putting on this show, I could help entertain you and your kids for a moment and that we could all share a laugh or two.

I held this show at 10am on Sunday, March 15th on my my Facebook page, where you can now watch it in all its glory!

O M F ing G

O M F ing G is a brand new, original song, dedicated to those who are freaking the heck out about toilet paper as the COVID-19 virus spreads. Here in Australia we have supermarkets completely sold out of the stuff, while staples like canned foods and pastas are in plentiful supply.

Wash your hands folks. Stay home if you’re feeling crook. Enjoy this short little life we have – as Douglas Adams wrote – DON’T PANIC!

O M F ing G, there’s a virus going ‘round.
What the heck am I supposed to do, woohoo.
Quarantine is likely. My fear is growing nightly.
Just imagine if I’ve got to poo.

O M F ing G I could come down with a fever and be
Stuck at home for fourteen days with you,
I’ll duck down to the supermarket, maybe buy some soup but fuck it
Terrifies me I might have to poo.

O M F ing G there’s so much I have to buy, I just can’t
Think of what we’ll need when this comes through,
Should I buy some rice or pasta, stuff that might just last a week or
Two, NOPE I’m going to have to poo.

O M F ing G I can’t find the toilet paper.
I only want to buy a box or two,
A fight breaks out in aisle three so they don’t notice me take off with
Half their stash of paper for my poo.

O M F ing G, I’m at home in quarantine.
The toilet paper’s stuck up neatly in the loo.
I wish I had some laxative. I’m bound up by the drugs they give.
God, I wish that I could do a poo.

New Year. New Website.

It’s happened before. No doubt it will happen again. But here we are with a new lick of paint and some pretty awesome new features.

In the past I’ve had trouble differentiating between my career in technology and my passion for performing. But with the coming of my company, Cloud Innovation, I can finally keep my technobabble out of your face!

I’m pretty excited that this site now entirely focuses on my music, with dedicated Galleries, Releases, Videos, Show Dates and so much more!

So enjoy the content I’ve already been able to source. And brace yourself. The onslaught that will be 2020 is just beginning.

Remembrance Day 2016 with Red Symons

Continuing with my tradition of discovering new and interesting bugling experiences, Remembrance Day 2016 turned it up and gave me another memorable one; an interview and performance with Red Symons on Melbourne’s 774 ABC Radio.
